HA NOI - The Huong (Perfume) pagoda in Ha Noi's suburban district of My Đuc opened on the sixth day of the Lunar New Year (January 28), attracting tens of thousands of people from across the country.

Many families in Ha Noi and adjacent areas had to leave from 2am or 3am in the morning despite rain and chilly weather to reach Huong Tich cave at the opening time of the festival.

The organising board said it has arranged 4,600 boats and motorboats to serve pilgrim demand.
Viet Nam's largest and longest Buddhist festival will last until April 30, or April 10 according to the lunar calendar. - VNA
